Subject: From the play "For the Sake of the Family"
There are some funny moments. The séance scene comes to mind. The physical examination is also funny. Alvin reading the telegram is another humorous moment.

There is some funny dialogue as well.

My favorite line when he discovers that the only buyer he can find for his long held family acreage, is from a local banker who intends to turn it into the new city dump.

That would be a fine monument to the Elkins family What would grand father say? What would father say? I’d be afraid to die.”

Irene Ryan shows a touch of “Granny” in this movie. She can be heard using her real voice (as well as being seen) as Mrs. Veronica Higby in Melody for Three.

Second time I've watched it and enjoyed it as much the second time around.

Many years ago my old man had a chance to buy an old broken down farm, but passed on it because all us kids were still little. Today there's a multi-billion dollar mall on that very farm and new freeway right beside it. He also had a chance to be the second company in the US to make printed circuit boards and passed on it for the same reason..A bunch of rug rats at home...The moral of the story..kick your kids out now (if you have any) while they still know everything.

Thuroughly enjoyed this film, taken from the play. Great character acting, stupid gags and shtick everywhere. But for what it is, it is watchable and every actor plays the role to a tee.

So...THAT's what Granny Clampett's voice was really like...

A nice piece of post-war entertainment. If you aren't expecting Gone With the Wind...you'll be pleased with it.

Subject: Try it
You might like it, it has lots of good actors, and is well made.
Stewart Erwin, Milburn Stone, Irene Ryan, good cast.
A good story too, but the writing tires me out.
It's not really bad writing but it could be better.
